Website in which people like Bleedman, Snapesnogger, kris-wilson or Purplekecleon's became famous, regardless if their art it's nice or shitty.

Is an art community, in which people registers for uploading pictures. Like fotolog or photobucket, but for art.

Generally good artists that draw original art in there are very unknown and rarely become popular. In the other hand, if you draw Sonic art, Pokémon chibies, or fanart of male guys with a femenine look on their faces there's a huge possibility that you'll be famous.

In general is a good website when you are looking for fanart, or a place for uploading fanart. Tracing is allowed by the admins, but rejected by a good part of the community. And not always the best deviations get to the "daily deviation" prize.

Sometimes is used too for hosting pictured of naked bodies showing their genitals. If is a male guy and the account is found, he will be banned. If is a female, photos will just be marked as "mature".
Yesterday I went to Deviantart. I found inuyasha art.

A website/gallery where anyone can upload his/her art for other users to see and comment on. Primarily, a Deviant Art user is going to find either anime/manga (perverted) or photography (pornography under the category of "artistic nude").
The wonderful thing about Deviant Art is that anyone can upload his/her artwork. The crappy thing about Deviant Art is that anyone can put his/her up.

There is some good art don't get me wrong. But the worst, disproportional art is the most popular. People who use MsPaint, bases, or even the worst, Bases in MSPaint for shitty animes like Naruto. I wouldn't be surprised if someone whom was an art equivalent to Van Gogh got little to no views on this horrible abomination for a website. Most people communicate through a thing called notes, which is sort of like a forum between 2 people. Some role players on here are very good though.
Dude 1: Yo! Did you see what I posted on DeviantART?
Dude 2: How many people favourited it?
Dude 1: Like... one.
Dude 2: That must mean you have done a masterpiece.

A free website (with a paid membership option) where people are able to upload their drawings, paintings, digital art, photos, etc. with virtually no restriction.

It is true that the site has the unfortunate downfall of having superfluous quantities of bad and/or mentally disturbing/sexually deviant artwork, but for the most part it is a very useful site for those who know how to use the search box correctly to find what they want.

It is also home to many creative minds and talented artists, and Deviant Art is not without humor either. Artists like myself mainly draw humorous "cartoons" or comic strips, among other things see Demotivational Posters.
I compose and submit humorous artwork and posters on my main deviant art account.

On my other account I submit erotic and romantic artwork with the appropriate tags so that innocent bystanders are not "traumatized" by my mildly deviant tastes (I am not a furry, and I'm not into tentacle porn or anything illegal).

A site dedicated to art. Most of the people who use it just want to feel special because they drew a picture, but there are a select few users who are actually good at "art".
